Abstract

The history, clinical course and pathological findings are reported of a patient who developed a recurring, malignant meningioma. Widespread extracranial metastases occurred, particularly in the liver. Hypoglycaemia was a prominent feature during the late course of the disease. The influence of the histological type of meningioma and the effects of surgical interventions on the development of extracranial metastases are discussed together with the relationship of the tumour to hypoglycaemia.
